So I was going about my business Friday night, when I got an email that someone had followed me on twitter. It was something about curing diabetes.
Great, I thought. More spam.
Only a little investigating revealed that it wasn't spam, but a real twitter account with someone claiming to be a doctor with a cure for insulin-dependent diabetes. Even better. Not. BLOCK!!!!
A friend on twitter had also been followed by this person, and had said in the most animated terms to back off and leave them alone (my paraphrase- the actual tweet was much more colorful)!
So the two of us had a little conversation about blocking this account and how they were full of crap and spreading misinformation.
Today, my phone buzzed to tell me I had this mention:
"@jessmeandd So u rather keep ur diabetes than be cured? MAN U MUST REALLY ENJOY HAVING IT. HOW STUPID CAN ONE BE? I GOT CURED!! reTwEET!"
This tweet was not from that "doctor," but from someone claiming to have been cured by him.
I am livid. This was several hours ago, and I'm still pissed!!!! Had I written this post right away, it would have needed a big disclaimer about foul language!
What I really wanted to do was tweet this asshat back and repsond in kind.
Instead, I said a long string of curse words, and took a deep breath.
I blocked this asshat too.
And I am NOT retweeting those ugly words.
Nor am I going to name either account involved in this whole thing.
As much as I want to let the whole DOC attack these idiots, I am not going to do that.
Because it would bring them attention. And they do not deserve our attention.
They deserve to be ignored.
So, you asshats, I will ignore you. I will not let you ruin my day.
My fellow diabetics and I are stronger than you could ever imagine.
You are not worth ANY of our time.
